The Heart of the Frontier series is out in full. All three books are available!
This best-selling series (thanks to my dear readers) has been well-received and I really appreciate the encouraging letters I've received. The series touches on some difficult topics, most of which are all too familiar to our own time period.
Book one - Treasured Grace deals with the Whitman Mission massacre in 1847. The Mission has a National Park site just outside of pres

One of the really neat things about this series is all three are set in Montana and all three have Yogo sapphires as a point of interest. Otherwise - this is an independent series where all three books stand alon

Fall has come to Montana. The mountains have received their first good dousing of snow and now as the temperatures get colder the snow capping will remain until next summer.
I love Montana and the colder weather. I've never done well in the heat and since learning about having MS - it's really no wonder. My body just doesn't regulate the temperature in my body properly, so warm weather, stuffy Walmarts, and hot, humid climates just don'
Just got back from hearing the Bozeman Symphony perform Ode to Joy - Beethoven's 9th. Amazing is the only word that comes to mind.
Bozeman definitely has its share of talented people and the orchestra that perform is no exception. I've always been a great fan of Beethoven's 9th anyway and this was such a neat way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
What's even more remarkable is the fact that Beethoven wrote this when he was almost completely deaf. When it was first
For those of you who have never heard the name Joshua Bell, I have to enlighten you.
Joshua Bell is an amazing violinist and I had the great opportunity to hear him play in Ft. Collins, CO last week. I was not disappointed. Mr. Bell is considered a "classical music superstar." He was recently named the Music Director of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields and has earned numerous awards and debuted when he was just 14.
Years ago I worked in an office with a lot of other women. In fact, I worked in several such offices and one thing was always common. If one woman started complaining about something—everyone else joined in with their complaints. It was as if the very act of complaining was contagious.
Many was the time I would go to work feeling quite content with the world and all that was in it. I would go to work determined to be a positive influence and show a contented
Oh it's Christmas time and once again the beautiful strains of Handel's Messiah can be heard in some of the most unexpected places. I absolutely love Messiah. It's some of the most amazing music and of course the Scriptures are very dear to the heart. In researching about Messiah and Handel, I came across some interesting tidbits and wanted to share them with you.

On the road again and heading to teach at the Colorado Christian Writer's Conference in beautiful Estes Park, CO. We had thought to have lovely spring/summerish weather, but alas it is still winter in the West. Actually - this is the norm for Springtime in the Rockies (hum the song if you know it)
So the weather and roads cooperated until we got about 60 miles north of Cheyenne, WY and then blizzard conditions set in with 35+ mph winds and snow. The
I'm in the process of redoing my office. Because of some of my physical issues, it's been important for us to downsize and declutter. My dear hubby and I used to share an office - but he's a pack rat and I needed more space so he moved his office to the shop. I love him for that.
Jim also moved out hundreds and hundreds of books from our built in bookshelves and dusted those and cleaned for me. After that we decided the floor - an old inexpensive pergo - had
Had a great time speaking at the Herbert Wescoat Memorial Library in McArthur, Ohio. Clint Walker the Library Director is pictured here with me. He was such an awesome host and the group that gathered to hear me speak were also wonderful.
I talked about Inspirational fiction and the changes it's had on the fiction world. Over the years we've been blessed to see a huge boost of sales and variety in Christian fiction and I'm so happy to be a part of it.
I'm super excited. Liz Curtis Higgs has a new E-Book only coming out Tuesday March 18th.
Here's the cover and a blurb about the book. I hope everyone will inundate the internet ordering this for their readers. I'm a long-time fan of Liz's and I can tell you her writing will not disappoint.

I'm so excited to announce that I have a new co-written book with Kimberley Woodhouse. Kim is the author of 3 other books - WELCOME HOME, and with daughter Kayla: NO SAFE HAVEN and RACE AGAINST TIME. People often ask me why I co-write from time to time and the initial reason is always the same - to introduce a new or new-to-you author and let you know that this is a great opportunity to connect. Kind of an "If you like me and my books - you'l
Christmas is such a wonderful time for friends and family. It’s an amazing time of reflection and inspiration. Not to make you sad, but it’s also a time when the suicide rates are highest. Isn’t that sad? The very holiday that we celebrate the birth of our Savior is a time when so many people give up.
Often the reason is due to empty chairs.
Chairs can be empty for a lot of reasons. Family and friends are too busy to visit or come by. In this
